Bobby is in the closet, but ready to come out of it. Wearing a Mask, he attends the Abyss’s Halloween Parties, watching Thor from the sidelines week after week. He’s interested in Thor, but Thor is straight. And, oh, yeah, they are friends.

Thor is intrigued by the man in the mask. He knows he has met him before but can’t place him. Finally he approaches Bobby and Bobby makes his move. Bobby requests a spanking, but only from Thor. But unknown to Bobby is that Thor also prefers men.

The two go off and share a scene together. Read the book to find out more because I don’t want to ruin it for anyone. Know that it ends abruptly, so you have to wait to read the second book to find out what happens. It is a trio of books so don’t think that this will be a full length story.

I have been a fan of Lissa Matthews since I read Pink Buttercream Frosting two years ago. Reading about Masked on Lissa Matthew’s site, it is mentioned that Thor, a character in this book, is also in the Pink Buttercream Frosting book. After reading Masked, I plan on going back and re-reading Pink Buttercream Frosting again.

While I am not generally into Male/Male romances, I found that this was very tastefully written. Not over the top. The men are men and not betrayed the way media betrays them. I suspect the romance will get deeper because both men are keeping the secret that they prefer men. One has a family hang up over it and the other really just doesn’t want to deal with the backlash  until he has too.

Basically, this book is fabulous, well written and makes me pant for the next book.

About Lissa Matthews

Living in North Carolina, talented, multi-published author, Lissa Matthews, has many loves in her life: Family, friends, NASCAR, football, music of all kinds, cooking, BDSM, and last, but not least, coffee. She loves it so much she and those who know her are surprised she hasn’t floated away on a caffeine-induced cloud while giving life to feisty heroines and hunky heroes.

Lissa’s love of romance came from every book she has ever picked up. No matter what she read, she fell in love with the written word. The promise of escape, the deep, intriguing characters, and the winding journey from beginning to end, constantly drew her into bookstores and libraries as she was growing up.

Her first stories were written in junior high and she kept it up through college. She would stay up late at night when her kids were little reading romance and still penning her own stories. In 2007, when she and her family moved to North Carolina from Florida, she began pursuing writing as a profession and she couldn’t imagine doing anything else… Well, except maybe writing in her own cupcake bakery/coffee shop. But that dream is a ways down the road… Lucky for Lissa, she believes in dreams coming true.

Lissa is married with two children and seven, yes, seven cats. She blames her oldest child for the cats.
